endorsements, and shareholder value. we spoke with steve posavac, marketing professor at vanderbilt university. i began by asking, what kind of celebrity endorsement makes a good investment for a company and its shareholders. >> well, tom, celebrity endorsements can do a lot for brands. one of the most important things they can do is lead to just a lot of awareness of the branda l of excitement, consumers pay attention to the marketing of a brand to the extent that a celebrity is associated with it. but the other thing celebrities do very well is position products. products in some categories, think soft drinks, for example, that aren't very differentiated based on the product self but if you have a celebrity endorsement speak up on behalf of the product wa, people think about that celebrity than bleeds on to the brand, helps to seerbt the brand in the same way we-- associate the same way we think of that celebrity. >> tom: the ski that the attention is paid ultimately to the product, not to the celebrity making the pitch though, right? >> well, absolutely that's the case. the celebrity in som

lebanese place we found on the mat? right. ( laughter ) - your beans. - your beans. steves: in the romantic rolling hills flanking the danube river in austria stands the notorious nazi concentration camp at mauthausen. this slave labor camp functioned from 1938 to 1945 for the exploitation of hitler's opponents and victims. more than half of its 200,000 prisoners died here, mostly from starvation or exhaustion. like many camps, mauthausen was located at a quarry. inmates generally labored for the german armaments industry or quarrying stone for vast nazi building projects. the long stairway that connected the quarry with the camp and the stone depot earned the name "stairway of death" for good reason. in a concentration camp like mauthausen, your ability to endure forced labor amounted to a stay of execution. with the harshest of conditions and a starvation diet, if you weren't able to carry slabs of rocks on your back up this stairway all day long you'd be shot on the spot. much of mauthausen is a memorial park where each country has erected a gripping

with the dow after it reached 14,000 for first time since 2007. we're trading the action today with steve weiss, stephanie link and simon baker. what is it, pullback or push higher? >> what i'm doing is you take a look at your portfolio, say how much beta exposure do i actually have? i think you want to reduce the exposure to beta now. remain long in the marketplace, but own some of the large megacap type holdings. that gives you the ability to reduce some of your risk, rather, and for my final trade, a megacap name that will beat strongly to the upside. >> where do we go from here? >> the market always has to correct at some point. i'm not sure we can go through quite a correction. i think we have 2%, 3% down as we said before. we never know what the reason is going to be, which is what the surprise is. so we got it through europe today. i don't think it is anything that is going to be endemic, that will take the market down quite a bit. i agree with joe a little bit. we have gone pretty far, pretty fast. pretty far, pretty fast. so i also like the strategy. but i'm not selling anything. if an

's followed the dictum suggested by the late founder steve jobs. if you produce the best products which arguably apple has done, everything takes care of itself. that's something that's resonated throughout much of steve jobs' biography about walter isaacson. it's a bedrock principle of apple itself. i have to admit i have grasped about apple lately. incredibly low interest rates, that keeps it from earning a decent return for doing nothing at the moment as you used to be able to for so long. i have said that the cash itself has gone from being a positive at a time when so many companies have stretched balance sheets to a negative as it generates a small return. i have suggested they put some of the cash to work, buying the growth that many feel has been lost. perhaps buying twitter to be more moving aggressively into the social media space. or netflix for home entertainment. or even somewhat facetiously purchase amazon, with its itunes-like offers. all that said i never thought in a million years that somehow apple's become a bad actor because of its conservative ways of handling its b

, especially the school district because steve cook's memo where they are extending the contracts for the security clause to just the clause where the union member has to pay the union and can't exercise their right to work right. extending those clauses up to 10 years and it has nothing to do with wages, benefits or working conditions, simply preventing workers from getting the right to work right for 10 years. and you tell me, is that good for membership are putting the worker first or is that the union saying we want ours and we will do everything we can to make sure we're getting ours before the law goes into effect. gerri: is there any reaction inside the union membership against leadership? you have to think at some point people will not like these kind of tactics. that has to be offputting. >> they saw freedom coming two months from now, and now the unions are trying to take it away and extend those contracts for almost a decade. there is a lot of workers who feel like the rug is being pulled out from under them. gerri: let's talk about the kind of impact right to work can
